So, we've been away to Denver. Alas, there are no pics, but one. And it's ugly. Because it's a long trip (about 24 hours) we utilize the local coffee shop over the gas station coffee to help keep us awake. Starbucks is the number one pick because they are so consistent. But when I'm home I prefer to make my own. Except when I'm feeling especially lazy. Which is too often.
Here's what I see when I splurge at the drive through at Starbucks and then spend a "million dollars".
Home is much better and FAR cheaper. Besides, I don't have to dress up and go out and pretend I'm a YUPPIE that I'm definitely not. I can stay at home and be an "at home mom."
Even though it's much cheaper at home you still have to bite the bullet and buy the espresso machine. (We did years ago). I enjoy getting up in the AM and making my coffee just the way I like it. Nice and hot. Not too much chocolate. And good creme that I can swirl out with my fingers. (Don't worry. My fingers are clean.) The convenience cup I use when I'm in a hurry to go out the door to take LJ to school. In my "Un-yuppie" clothes.
